The Arroyo del Tórtolas is an amazing wine made entirely from Granache grapes from vines that are over 75 years old. After the manual harvest, the grapes are cooled for 36 hours to promote pre-fermentative soaking and slow extraction. Then vinification takes place in wooden tanks with yeast stalks. Traditionally pressing is done with the feet, with very careful movement to prevent excessive extraction. The aging of this beautiful wine can take place in peace and quiet and is at least 14 months in 500 liters of French oak barrels. The wine then remains in stainless steel for 6 months for natural stabilization before bottling can take place.

The Bernabeleva Arroyo del Tórtolas is refined and elegant but also sturdy. With aromas of ripe fruit, a hint of violets, Mediterranean herbs (thyme, rosemary) and some grains. The Arroyo del Tórtolas is powerful in the mouth, with very fine tannins and a subtle mineral structure.

Bernabeleva winery

Under the leadership of Marc Isart and Raul Perez, this young winery Bernabeleva has been very close to the road with the small high altitude and already very old Grenache vineyard. It is definitely a beautifully situated vineyard of more than 80 years old situated at the top of the hill at 700 meters. It is a thin bottom layer of compacted granite. The plot covers 35 hectares on a high plateau. Bernabeleva belongs to the top of the DO Madrid and has since become a position among the top of the Spanish wineries.
